So yesterday I showed off some of my babies at my old house. Now I am showing off some the beauty that I have inside at my new house. This is a little wood shelp that I have over my kitchen sink. I love to bring in fresh cut little flowers or plants that I am trying to root. I also love to collect old bottles to place them in. I bought 3 old bottles at a little yard sale last saturday for a whopping amount of 50 cents a piece. I also love my African Violets. I never had much luck with AVs until last year and I tried them again and they actually started blooming for me. When the hubby is finished with the old house he is going to build me a new little shelf for this window because the current one is old, cheap, and flimsy,,and its bowing in the middle but still seems pretty stable. Its one of the first items on his "honey do" list.
I just love this little test tube bloom holder. It has a suction cup on it that attaches to the window. I bought it at the Dollar Tree store and bought one for Mom too. I would like to go back and see if I can buy a few more.
This is one of the old bottles that I bought. Its a Mrs. Stewart's blueing bottle not sure how old it is but I say at least 30-50 years old. I just love Coleuses. I think they are some of the most prettiest plants and now they have so many varieties of them available. I like to pinch them off and start new shoots and stick them in the ground some where that needs some more color to liven things up. And they are very colorful thats for sure.
The flower in the brown bottle is a white Coneflower, it looks yellow in the picture. The little brown bottle was another one that I bought saturday and it says Listerine on it, not sure how old it is. The little blue bottle is one that I have had,,I have about 100 different colored ones of these sweet little minatures. Some are old and some are reproductions. Thats a sweet little marigold in the blue bottle.
I just wanted to share a little something that in my house that makes me smile.
Have a terrific Tuesday!!!!
